Coffee and Walnut Cake



Coffee and Walnut Cake

This is another cake that I’ve baked in the breadmaker using the BAKE setting.



  • 125g walnut halves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 225g butter, softened
  • 225g brown sugar
  • 4 medium eggs


  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 24 walnut halves


  1. Heat a frying pan and gently roast the chopped walnuts and the walnut halves.
  2. Grease and line the cake tin.
  3. Dissolve the instant coffee in 1 tablespoon boiling water.
  4. Coarsely grind 50g of the chopped walnuts in a food processor.
  5. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  6. Beat in the eggs.
  7. Gently fold in the ground walnuts, chopped walnuts, flour, baking powder and salt.
  8. Pour the mixture into the cake tin.
  9. Bake in the breadmaker for 25-30 minutes on the BAKE cycle until cooked.
  10. When the cake has cooked, leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  11. Turn out the cake.
  12. Prepare the topping by dissolving the instant coffee in 2 tablespoons of boiling water and stirring in the icing sugar.
  13. Ice the cake with the topping and decorate with the walnuts halves.
